agreement among its international law scholars that the use of lethal force is permissible under international law, and human-rights law, in response to a specific concrete and imminent threat. in the law of war context, when you are in an armed conflict, it would be permissible against civilians who are directly participating in hostilities, as those terms are defined under the laws of war and as long as other requirements are met. what has been made public in speeches by administration officials -- and i do appreciate that the speeches have been made -- alice well as the white paper that was first leaked -- is that those are not the standards being applied. if you look at the white paper alone -- remember that this was a summary of a legal memo used to justify the killing of a u.s. citizen who was a senior operational and al qaeda leader -- the restrictions that the white paper recognizes, for example, on what constitutes imminent threat, feasibility of requirements,r what appear to be limitations are in fact permissions. it turns out that the senior high level official who is

in washington, dc, discussing about drones and the rule of law and war. >> good morning and thank you all for coming today. i am the director of the homeland security project at the bipartisan policy center. we are glad to see you all here. the homeland security project new jerseyby former governor tom kean and has a core mission to be inactive bipartisan voice on homeland and national security issues. we are glad to have in the audience one of the homeland security project members, john gannon, up here in front. today's event is to have an important discussion, and we are glad to have an esteemed panel with us. the threats facing our nation are not going away. as we predicted in our report in online radicalization that we released this past december, we need to use all the tools at our disposal to meet and forth that threat. one in particular is the reason we gather here today. the use of drones, unmanned aerial vehicles, has become the center of a brewing controversy. today we will hear from a number of government officials and activists and current reporters who are experts in the use
amazing. but they're not unique. this is what the pro-gun law has been like. they have conducted a one-on-one approach to applying political pressure. they have pushed hard to meet with members of congress directly, not with their staffs, in order to tell their personal stories, with specific tales of tragedy and loss and violence have been at the very core of this movement. and yet despite all the political power these victims and their families really do possess, the one gun safety bill that seemed to have at least a chance of passing this year failed. republicans in the senate and democrats blocked the background bipartisan bill sponsored by senator joe manchin a democrat and republican joe toomey. it is true the bill did not pass. it is not true the activism behind it ceased to exist. one of the senator republicans who backed the bill needs to be asked that question. senator kelly held a town hall meeting and let's say the background checks bill has been the elephant in the room. >> let me say i do every town hall meeting this way. i have a process and we will get to as many questi
come from a country where law enforcement is part of that enslavement and human trafficking is slavery. you will not trust law enforcement in another country. sometimes victims that come from another country say i'm better off here no matter how bad it or how badly i'm abused or treated. so there's that. they begin to identify with their trafficker. everybody i get or need i have to get from this person. >> talking about that, sister, where do traffic people live? how do they live? and where do they get food? and how are they treated? >> they are often treated very poorly. they can be forced to work long hours. we had a woman that was brought to this country by friends of the family. >> that sounds like a door that we want to open. we're coming back on mosaic. stay with us. [silence]@ for those dealing with the struggles of caring for a loved one, ú we hear you. visit aarp.org/caregiving for advice and support. >>> welcome back to mosaic. and we're talking about a difficult topic, human trafficking. you've been involved in this for how many years? >> 2008. >> you won an award. you ha
campbell? that's good. those of you who don't, especially if you're in law enforce. you're probably going to want to write this down. no graph.net. randy campbell has been working in graffiti cases forever and he's a retired, i think, sheriff or highway patrolman. maybe somebody can help me out there. >> highway patrol. >> highway patrolman. what he runs it's no ground.net. for law enforcement, if you're looking for a tagger you think is crossing state boundaries and you catch one and you want to put up that person's tag to other law enforcement agencies, he's got a network where you can do that. so, you send that in to him, he sends it out and it goes to hundreds of cities. if you're looking for somebody and you think that other cities might know who that is, put that out and he'll send it out to all those cities. so, e-mail him and get on his network. he's got a website. and he's a great resource for law enforcement specifically and everybody else, too, but law enforcement specifically to help you find graffiti vandals or to add on to cases if you do find a graffiti vandal. so, this is
really act as a good communicator and facilitator in the program from a law enforcement background. and the grant we get through public works really allows us to run effectively. >> great, thank you. >> [speaker not understood]. let me come on over here. what's your question? >> okay. [speaker not understood]. i've gotten three years of knowledge [speaker not understood]. my question is this. how am i going to get the police department, how am i going to get city council -- they're partially on board, but some of our people in public works are here today. how can i convey to them that i'm not a nut -- everybody here thinks i'm a nut because [speaker not understood]. how did they really take this seriously and realize that graffiti is a crime and it requires money and it requires attention from the officials, not just from covering graffiti? is there an answer? can you give me some sort of -- what's a good direction? >> [speaker not understood]. >> [speaker not understood]. basically the task force, they'll put together and try to convince the citizens something is happening, then i
as sequestration. describing the law as quote the worst possible way to cut spending. homeland security secretary janet napolitano, housing secretary shaun donovan, and others, spoke at an event hosted by the partnership for public service. an organization that describes itself as a nonpartisan, nonprofit group focusing on improving the federal workforce. this is about an hour. >> i'm the president of the partnership for public service and i will be very brief because i that bad cold. it is a great pleasure to welcome all of you here to psr w., public service recognition week, and it is our intent that it serves as an antidote to s.b. hud which is that bashing all the time. [laughter] seriously we will never get the government we want it all we do is tear it down. amazing things are going on all the time i public servants, and we need to recognize them if we want to see them replicated by other public service. this is the period of time that has been both congressionally and presidentially determined to be the week when we focus intently on the good things that are public servants are doing to ou
says dish has the right to fire him since pot is still illegal under federal law. i don't know about you guys but i saw this one coming. didn't you? we have the attorney representing mr. coats. an employment lawyer. michael, michael, let me start with you, if it is against federal law why do you think you have a case here? >> colorado has a very unique statutory regime as well as constitutional amendments. you can't really compare us to california or washington. we have a very specific state statute that says if you're complying with state law, after hours and off company property, that you can't be terminated for that. not a lot of states have that. melissa: seth, what is the response to that? >> well, that's not the entire context of what the statute says. i think you have to look at this case under the lens of both state andfederal law. under state law, the statute provides for use of medical marijuana. however, there is nothing in the language that provides a cloak of immunity that can force a company to throw its policy in the garbage for zero tolerance for drug use. i know it i
and there is people all the time up in there educating myself about the law, i know is fast to get in there, but when the wheels are turned to come home, it's slow. i couldn't accept it. people are like they are going to do this to time. i said no, this is clear. this was what was supposed to have been done from the beginning. even my families, my loved wupz ones that lost. that made me fight more. i never gate gave up my fate. my hope is restored. >> with that i would like to thank all of our panelist. thank you. [ applause ] and we are now going to move to our second panel. while they take their seats, this idea of forced treatment versus constitutional rights has always been a tension that we've had in our criminal justice system. there is an issue that came up earlier this year that you may have read about involving this implementation of a court that was supposed to treat individuals who were suffering from long-term alcoholism. and the court was set up in a way where individuals were not being arrested for a crime but instead were being jailed for contempt of court as long as 120-150 days in
discipline, but holly has come up with a really wonderful solution within law enforcement that we would love you to talk about and it's preventive and solution. >> thank you. it's not going to be a shock to you that i don't have a sizzle reel but i did manage to get a few powerpoint slides in so it's a good thing if i can get my next one. can you advance it for me please? so it is a safety course that i created with yahoo. we partnered together. i started asking questions the first day so my boots are on the ground and i'm in the schools and i love doing what i do, and i believe wholeheartedly and i believe it was the soft power -- yes, i love it. i think it's effective in so many ways, so i had luckily teamed up with the right people at yahoo who were really amazing and just the foresight they saw, and believed in the concept that law enforcement needs to be a piece of this puzzle and have some solutions. we have a unique part in the schools and with kids and this did get certified for the peace officer standards and we get credit for that being police officers and our training and o
at bringing in laws. so, maybe you can create some kind of law. you're so good at that. you would be the country to start that, i would be quite certain. we have to go about 10 steps through parliament and it takes 20 years to change a law. i think you can do it overnight. [laughter] >> well, maybe. thank you. (applause) >> we have another answer. >> if i might very quickly. >> yes, of course. >> i have worked with aerosol with youth on murals as well as individual projects. i've also done collage. we've done paint pens. we have used a number of different things from silk screen t-shirts to making logos. my experience with these youth is you might engage them through graffiti. you don't have to use arrow zoll. it's expensive. it's anywhere from 8 to $14 a can wherever you get it. and you also have to then worry about protecting the eyes, the hands and the proper respirator which could be 35 to $50 apiece per youth. so, to me it's a really expensive way to engage that graffiti side of the artistic or creative behavior. at the same time, montana wants their name out there. so, if yo
of cyber bullying and that is why i did a remarkable partnership in south florida with local law enforcement who had gone into schools talking about bullying, including cyber bullying and giving people concrete examples of things of situations they saw, it was remarkable. and that is why we will continue to do that work. so i hope today as we move forward you will understand that we are in this together with you at the department of justice. this is an all hands on deck enterprise. there is so much to do. i hope at the end of this day we will indeed all follow the lead of that student, walk out and say what are one or two things i'm going to do differently and better? how are we going to improve this situation? i hope if you take one and only one thing from melinda and my and ruslyn's remarks today, if you have an idea, please bring them to us. we want to learn from you. we are in this together and i want to say thank you because the most important thing we have is a recognition that you understand that this is indeed a national issue for us to deal with. i'm looking forw
it seth's law in honor of her, she had been in and around sacramento for a long time. so the legislation in and of itself, i don't think it's going to work miracles, but it is definitely on people's radar now and i think you hear it in the media more and more. the reason we have a suicide barrier and the reason we are having legislation like this is because of the parents and the families because they are the ones that hurt the most and i would imagine part of the therapeutic thing, you've got to tell this story and telling it in the right place and the right time can be very effective. so seth's law does require that if you witness an act of bullying, that you must report it. >> is that for anybody? >> anyone, but particularly teachers. there is a -- sometimes we see things that aren't very pleasant and if you've ever taken it to muni, you know what i mean. your tendency is to turn away. i heard the word faggot on the play ground when i taught. the teachers were intimidated, they didn't want to be seen to have any empathy because that might reflect on them. it's crazy but that's p
for blocking gun laws. and one school you won't believe what the administrators did. a very full day in the boston bombing case. three full suspects, one charged with lying to investigators, another charged with obstructing justice. a revelation about the older alleged bomber and his widow shortly before the bombing. what do you make of the case between these three. two kaszak students and the other a u.s. citizen. >> one question we should never ask is, ask people be that stupid? if these allegations are true, the idea that these guys given the pressure you in the country. >> it wasn't help before the bombing, it was help after the alleged bombing. >> you make an important point. there's no evidence at all that these three were conspirators to do the bombing. no allegation that they were involved with the brothers. >> althouthough there is an allegation that tsarnaev said a month ago, i know how to make a bomb. >> true. the core allegations in today's case are, that these three were friends of the younger brother at the university of massachusetts at dartmouth and they were somehow

of the southern poverty law center? when you were trying to have a good old time you might be a red neck or the southern poverty law center may have a bug up its ass. and one does a former child star need to do to get attention these days? amanda bynes has a series of questionable selfies, girlfriend. and many will welcome allah and after reading amanda bynes' twitter feed, i do too. i love the amanda show, but she is getting out of hand. >> we will talk about this more as it develops. now our guests. i am here with author, columnist and fox news columnist jedediah bila. things are different now. she has to protect the one thing she can't live without. and a first time guest. he is comedian joe list. he is not a man. nothing more than a maniac. bill schulz, some people call him a terrorist, and he considers himself a teacher. and next to me, former new mexico governor gary johnson. he builds neat stuff and has a great girl. >> a block. the lede. that's the first story. welcome to the worst day of your miserable life, america. >> thanks, a lot. it was meant to be fun, but offended everyon
law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental disconnect between how we view philosophy of free will and human control on the criminal side versus the civil side and not surprisingly on both sides "the state wins" because on the criminal side you go to prison and on the civil side, you get incarcerated civilly. >> i don't think that's much of a disconnect. i think -- so i agree with you the test has changed. that's not what i'm talking about. if you look at the kind
-- the liberals are they spoke in tahrir square about freedom, democracy, rule of law, human dignity. this was much more attractive than jihadi. unfortunately, tahrir square was hijacked, and the arab world is going to another season, not so much the spring, maybe the winter. but the arab spring, once again, in the short run give al qaeda a lot of opportunities. weapons from all over the place. libya is a big warehouse that now spread all over the middle east. syria, iran, so a lot of money, a lot of weapon, a lot of shelter to build their bases. but i think in the long run that people of career -- tahrir square will come there. this is a phenomenon that cannot be put back into the basement. the young generation of arabs are on the website. they can see how other nations are living. you cannot tell them stories. they know what's going on. they want to live, and this struggle of ideas in the arab world should be looked very well, because i think that in the long run al qaeda is going down. how we continue to deal with terror, i already spoke about intelligence. cyber is new. i say the

thought this law was well constructed. even its staunchest advocates and that includes the two senate democrats who have come out to talk about problems with implementation of the law. that's jay rockefeller and then max baucus and now harry reid. no one ever thought this was well done. but it was done as well as they thought was possible. it took on sort of the feeling of a snatch and grab operation. they knew that scott brown had been elected in massachusetts. they just had to get it done in 2010 or they decided they had to get it done. they put it together. nobody thought it was put together particularly well. liberals had complaints about it too, but they pressed on. under promises that this would get better. well, it isn't getting better and the implementation isn't going well, so now democrats ahead of midterm elections are making clear if there are problems with the implementation here, it's the fault of the administration, one. and two, republicans and harry reid's case who refused to provide enough additional funding to put the law in place. >> why do we need all this additio
annenberg media ♪ annenberg media ♪ in maryland, state law protected home buyers from high interest rates. how could rapidly changing economic conditions turn that law against them? for years, general motors got the most from investments by refurbishing assembly plants. why, then, would they spend $500 million on a radically new plant? how could an idea developed by two college dropouts be worth $300 million? a fundamental incentive of our economic system is to make money. it is why we work, save, invest, and take risks. individuals and institutions alike want to maximize the money they can get from the marketplace. profits and interest-- how do you get the best return? with economic analyst richard gill, we'll investigate that question on this edition of economics usa. i'm david schoumacher. the church first decreed that charging for the use of money was sinful. the concept of usury and its immorality is found in the bible. by the middle ages, it was church law. usury came to mean excessive interest rates. limiting rates to reasonable levels was adopted as government policy. what c
a proposed law that would reduce felony drug possession crimes to a misdemeanor. this is what 13 states have done. we not only bring these issues to the forefront, but have the opportunity to participate -- and we have cards that you could fill out and questions. this promises to be a year of reform and change like we have never seen, and we now see prisoner reentry programs being implemented. we're still spending too much money and resources and not enough on rehabilitation and reentry. this november, the voters will decide on limiting the three strikes law. issues and measures long overdue. it is clear there is much more that needs to be done. according to a study that was published this month -- since 1989, 2000 people have been wrongfully incarcerated and they served collectively, 10,000 years. an average of 11 years person. i would like to thank the people who made this summit possible. memoranda -- amy devon -- many volunteers and all of our speakers and panelists. i would like to thank the co- sponsors, and the bar association of san francisco. i would like to thank them for their hel
a different perspective on it and in my view that is an issue either you are complying with the ethics laws or not. you based on the cult at consultation that you are. if someone believes differently they can file complaints or whatever they want to do. but ultimately from our perspective you have filed a form 803 in your mind and the mind of others that is sufficient although some people may disagree with thachl in terms of what is before us we have an issue of whether or not to prove the acceptance of furniture with self disclosure of these are the people who have contributed to the effort and the amount and the dates from which they have contributed and the purpose is for public disclosure so members of the public can draw whatever conclusions they want about different done donors or different amount. i'm comfortable of supporting the acceptance of the gift. everything is out on the public domain and people can have whatever opinion they want to have about that. and given that, it would be one thing if you came in and said you haven't filed anything and you said i don't know that i'm r
, first of all, these people may be far left, they are criminals. they are breaking the law. let's call people for what they are. >> bill: they are doing it in the name -- >> -- it doesn't matter. >> bill: ideology. they are not drug dealers. they are doing it in the name of political ideology. >> they are breaking the law. let me tell you something. the catholic church is very far left when it comes to economics. this pope is very critical of capitalism as was pope john paul. you don't see them rushing the barricades they issue cyclicals. that's the way you have debate in a civilized society. those people don't represent any of the liberals that i know, progressives or democrats or whatever the heck you all call us. >> bill: you would say they are far left people. >> anarchists, also breaking the law. you and i may disagree on politics, but we agree that you have got to follow the law. you can't assault police officers. >> bill: rule of law is what makes democracy hum. they don't want democracy, those people. you know what they want. i'm interested though because you are firmly engrain
both low income tax or no taxes coupled with right to work laws. hand in hand those laws will over time. few people do if you are really wealthy you think about that most americans think that is what you know goes hand in hand with these tax policies. that's why they are so critical for policy makers to get right. >> states seem to be doubling down on both good and bad policies? >> that's right. you have states like minnesota that have been talking about a snow bird tax raising marginal tax rates up here you have those kinds of states not doing as well. >> governor dayton says, these people are going to florida and arizona and in the winter, but they are minnesota people. we should get a little pedalling for that. i could see the thinking. if the disposable income was truly captive within your zip code, within your city, that might work, but what we know about career mobility today now more than ever is that people can and do move. they do pursue those jobs and where their income is most welcome. >> the states keep raising these taxes thinking they will get more money and they get less.
perhaps the law enforcement folks feel the cultures in the communities and see that come out in the adults. i would like to hear about how do you affect a culture and even in san francisco we have many cultures affecting what is valued, what is criticized. >> you know i think that richard touched upon this. it's a relationship of power and it's clearly going to differ from community to community; right. when i was telling you i was picked because because i didn't speak english or at all initially there were only about 5% of us that were hispanic in the school and wouldn't be the case if 95% are hispanic and english speaking as a second language, but i think the way that we can deal with the issue is we ought to first of all start with the notion of respect for others, and respect for others can work across the line. it doesn't necessarily mean -- it doesn'tly has to deal with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is unacceptable behavior, and i
but many of our most important nontrade law, food safety, regulation, the environment and more. this is intimately connected to fast track. number two, fast track has totally upended the balance of power, and it basically shredded a vital check and balance built into the constitution by the founders, dangerously concentrating what turns out to be vast power to unilaterally impose policies in a process that is heavily influenced by large corporations. fast track, among other things, officially empowered over 600 official corporate advisers who have access to taxes so secret congress doesn't see them, and to have direct input, and even to the public citizen, the organization where i work, is very focused, for 40 years on good process, good policy, fast track is even worse than the usual bad process, in that what it has basically allowed is a formalization of the use of trade agreements to, in a slow motion coup d'etat, quiet lie take over -- quietly take over democratic policies that vital to meet the challenges of 21st 21st century. some of husband started think, all right, this
